I am a Montessori Teacher and opened my Home Daycare Program about four years ago. Our program is for Preschoolers and Kindergarten aged children. Our day begins with Circle Time, some Montessori lessons and work period and our day includes themed activities, nutritious snacks and lunch, Outdoor Play or Gym Class and time for play and storytime.
